One in two Romanians has considered moving to another country after the start of the war in Ukraine, and the first options would be Germany, France and Britain, according to data made public by a recruitment platform. 12% of respondents are waiting to see how things unfold and 11% believe the war will not affect us. Another 26% say they will not leave the country irrespective of what happens next. The main reasons for moving abroad are the wish to change the scenery and the country where they work (38%), enhance personal and family safety (24%), the chance to earn more (21%), more opportunities for professional development (14%) and the wish to work in a safer environment, unaffected by war (4%).
